He said: “This has been a remarkable period in the history of cricket in England and Wales and I have been extremely proud to have been able to play a part in it.

“In my time at the ECB I have been fortunate to work with some extremely dedicated and talented cricketing people and I thank them and the Board all for the support they have given me and their contribution to the success of the England teams.

“It has been my privilege to work with Andy Flower, the England Team Director, during the last four years and congratulate the players on their three Ashes series successes, being the number one ranked team in the world in all three formats of the game, and also winning one ICC Global event and being runners-up in another. I am sure they will go on to even greater achievements in the future.
